I'm upgrading this....


To this....


We close on the house May 31st. The contractor wanted 30days to do the bonus room upgrade which will add 3-400 sq ft to the layout of the house. Here is the rest of it.

Now you will have to sell your KLR in favor of a BMW!



NICE!

I did about 60 miles on the KLR this morning between work and meeting up with the building contractor. After doing the doohickey I really like the ride. Also, after buying this house, I can't afford one of them purty starfangled machines them people call Beemers.

Some updates on workshop construction within my pole shed.

Basically, I ended up not having the time to do it, so I hired someone. This was an excellent move, and has turned the project away from mediocrity to exactly what I want.

The end of my pole shed is now framed, insulated and sheetrocked. Wire and outlets are placed, and the next phase is sand and paint.

The builders rescued my 8 ft ceiling and turned it into a 9ft ceiling shop, which I am very happy about. And it's got a proper door. There will be 4 X 8ft flourescent tube lights on the ceiling. Later in the year (when fall comes around again but let's not think about that too much) I will add a propane heater. I have had wiring run for that purpose.

Anyway, coupla pics:









The interior of the shop is roughly 16' X 30', which leaves approximately 25' X 30' left in the pole shed uninsulated for general storage - and building out at a later date.

So far so good!

Newly installed this weekend. Went together well. Seems durable. Oil comes up much more easily than from plywood. Cuts with wood tools. Good service.



Surface they now cover:

Not to hijack, but are they slippery when wet? My concrete floor was "over finished" and in wintertime it's tough to keep my feet under me.
